Here's an excellent Payola$ (more HERE) single from 1981. The A-side, " I'm Sorry" is a ska-rocker that excoriates an unnamed musical sell-out ("White rocker, sometimes reggae") that could be Joe Strummer, while the B-side, "You Can't Walk Away", has hard-hitting verses and the kind of huge chorus that could've put this band over the top.
While a recent re-formation EP and a slim Best-Of CD are available, the Payola$ albums have NEVER been re-issued on CD or digitally.
